philadelphia chapter Involvement

We're looking for a few good women!!

Volunteers are the engine of TTN. We are an all-volunteer organization.  Our Programs and Activities are as diverse as the members who plan them.  And without our members, we could not provide the rich offering that our members love and have come to expect.
If you feel that TTN has had a positive effect on your life – consider paying it forward!  Our Chapter is ever-growing and we need support from our members to help it remain vibrant.
Due to our growth and some recent resignations, TTN is looking to fill several Steering Committee positions.  The Steering Committee is our governing board.  Use your skills or develop new ones!  Help shape the future of our Chapter!
